Beth Allred Bell, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and sister, passed away on July 2, 2023, in Sandy, Utah. She valiantly fought pancreatic cancer for the past 15 months and has now been freed from mortal troubles, reunited with loved ones who preceded her in death.

Beth was born on January 10, 1950, in Safford, Arizona, to Edwin Reed Allred and Lila Green.

Beth was a remarkable woman who faced life's challenges with strength and resilience. She was a loving and dedicated wife to her late husband, Delen Craig Bell, who passed away on June 13, 2009. Beth also experienced the heart-wrenching loss of her sweet daughter, Carleen Bell Card, on May 16, 2013. Their memories remain in her and our hearts forever.

Beth leaves behind a legacy of love and family. She is survived by her five sons and their spouses, Aaron (Kim), Ryan, Nick (Kamilla), Matthew (Shawnee), and Scott. Beth cherished her role as a mother and poured her heart into raising her children. Her love, guidance, and support have forever shaped their lives. In addition to her sons, Beth is survived by her son-in-law, Cory Card. She has 18 grandchildren and one great grandchild. She is also survived by her brother, Vern (Dianne), sisters Jane and Judy (Alvin), sisters-in-law Sharlene (Randy), Jeri and Anna, and brother-in-law Glen Ray.

Born a fighter, Beth entered this world over six weeks premature. Despite doctors initially predicting a short life, thanks to loving care and answered prayers, she survived a challenging infancy. She grew up on a farm, in Mesa Arizona, located between the 2nd and 3rd canal, where she developed a love for working the land. The farm later became a cherished Christmas vacation destination for her entire family. She learned to love school and was elected as a class officer and for three years performed as part of the “Rabbettes,” her high school’s drill team, following in the footsteps of her two older sisters, Jane and Judy.

She attended Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo, Utah, on a full scholarship. It was at BYU where she met and fell in love with Craig. They married on October 2, 1970, and were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on October 11, 1977. Beth returned to school in 1980 to complete her education. After her children grew older, she worked at the Salt Lake City law firm of Cohne, Rappaport & Segal, forming lifelong and meaningful friendships. She loved the weekly lunches with her work friends to enjoy a “smothered” at La Frontera.

Beth retired from the law firm in 2015 and really enjoyed her post-work years. She loved to solve large puzzles, crosswords, crochet hats and scarves for her grandchildren and watch movies with a big bucket of popcorn in hand.

We will forever cherish the family gatherings, parties, and activities in which she played a central role. Her joyful attitude and ability to make us laugh will always be remembered. Beth was an example of unwavering faith, positivity in the face of adversity, and a deep appreciation for the beauty of God's creations, particularly sunsets. Her love, kindness, and indomitable spirit leave a lasting impact on all who knew her.

A viewing will be held at Larkin Mortuary, located at 1950 E 10600 S, Sandy, Utah, on Sunday, July 16, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. The funeral service will take place the following day, Monday, 11:00 am located at the stake center of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 275 E 10600 S, Sandy, Utah.

Just found out about Beth's passing. She is fresh in my memory of the good times at Cohne, Rappaport and Segal. She was a person whose example was always as a leader, ethical and more importantly loyal to her beliefs and the law firm.
We are saddened by her passing and wish all the best to her beloved family.

Beth was so genuinely kind. She had a goodness about her you could discern even associating with her briefly. I enjoyed talking to her in church and our ward will miss her greatly.

Hello all: I worked at Cohne Rappaport & Segal as an attorney from November 1994 through 2011, where I had the good fortune to have Beth as a work colleague and friend. She was unfailingly pleasant, kind, funny...just a lovely lovely lady. Also she was extremely competent in her work, with a strong work ethic, and she was always willing to help me get through whatever firm or administrative hurdles were bedeviling me. I'm so sorry for your loss; I was lucky to have known and worked with her.
